That was stupid.

That's the one thing they should never do. MC doesn't ever show his face. No digitally created face would do the character justice.

And to hell with them for killing Cortana.

I've heard from people who played FFVII how it was sad as hell when Aeris is killed (never played FFVII). That's how I think of this.

As you can tell, I really like Halo.

I kinda figured the didact and cortana would make it to a sequel.

Seems like they dwelt a lot on the chief being a "machine".

Maybe cortana dying will have a humanizing effect?

Here comes sbr2 to shite on the ending!

But seriously, I think some of these developers intentionally sacrifice quality for the sake of a sequel.

I just don't see how they could replace Cortana. Any other AI would just be weird.

$$$$ > integrity of the storyline.

It's cool. shite on it all you want.

I guess we are supposed to assume the didact survives because they didn't even try to build up some other "villain".

I can't really read it, but the 343 Guilty Spark clone goes in search of the Librarian?

That timeline explains some things, like WHAT THE frick THE DIDACT WAS. If you hadn't read all the terminals in Halo 3 then you were clueless as to what he was (other than Voldemorts relative).

It is amusing how they start throwing around the term didact without batting an eye.

I don't read any of the novels or other supplementary shit, so I was slightly confused for a while.

+1

I was confused most of the story because I didn't know who or how the Didact was/fit into the story.

I hope they never show Chief's face. That would be stupid as shite. Fwiw, he has the most badass voice ever. Steve Downes is the man.

Question, where the frick are Chief and Cortana after you set off the nuke? That was a big wtf for me

It seemed like she used up some her personality to create some sort of digital shield (wtf) to avoid the blast. It made no sense really.

I saw it as her using her remaining energy/self to control the hardlight, like she did when she bound the didact, and create a much larger hardlight shield.

That's just how I saw it.

Still pretty out there, but it at least makes some sense...I guess...maybe.

I agree. He is the helmet. You know he is human, but no face would do him justice.


What I don't get is why they didn't save the Cortana destruction for the end of the trilogy and she and the chief can go out in an actual blaze of glory, as they should.

If you watch the video after the credits, it sets it up for the sequel. Also, I'm pissed cortana died. That could have been saved for 6, it's not like it would be that hard to say AI die in 10 years instead of 7. I feel like they did that because they felt they needed more story substance but you really have all the story substance you need when this dude has a giant fricking ship, that can control motherfricking brains, and a weird looking forerunner motherfricker on it.

I'm with scruffy, cortana and chief should have went down in a fricking glorious scene of all scenes at the end of 6.

And it better be fricking glorious when chief dies. Glorious.

I liked the ending besides Cortana being knocked off. It was weird though. I still wish they would have made Chiefs Armor for who beat it on Solo Legendary only.

Well... MC is white. We know that!

Imagine: A Cut scene of MC with a few hundred other NEW Spartans in a circle guarding some planet killing Nuke. They all have full auto guns blazing outward as knights, crawlers, and grunts charge at them by the hundreds. With bodies of the bad guys falling left and right and Humanitys future riding on whatever they are about to destroy, MC looks at Earth one last time, tears his helmet off, yells something epic (AXIOS maybe?) then hits the detonate button and goes out in a blaze of glory. For real this time..
